The Border Guide is the definitive guide to cross-border financial planning. If you are a Canadian living in the U.S. seasonally or all year round, or if you are an American citizen returning to the U.S. after a prolonged stay in Canada, this book can save you time, money and headaches.

Many people incorrectly assume that the laws governing investment, taxation and immigration are the same in the US as they are in Canada. This book, written by a cross-border financial planning expert, will clarify these laws and show you how to transact your cross-border business and personal finance with confidence.

In his informative guide, noted financial planner and columnist Robert Keats teaches you what you need to know about cross-border financial planning.
You'll learn how to:
  • Become a legal resident of the either the U.S. or Canada
  • Avoid the "exchange rate blues"
  • Qualify for the old-age and social security benefits on both sides of the border
  • Get the best from both the Canadian and U.S. medical systems
  • Make U.S.-based investments that are exempt from U.S. income tax
  • Alleviate your tax burden when returning to Canada after an extended stay in the U.S.
  • Move your small business across the border
  • Understand U.S. estate planning
  • Remove your RRSP from Canada at no or very low tax
The Border Guide also offers useful information for US citizens living in, investing in, or moving to Canada.
